TRANSCRIPT

Unelected president Joe Biden: "We have the tool to combat the virus."

Last Thursday, Biden revealed his six-step plan to curb the Delta variant of COVID-19

But according to U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, Biden's not done: "There will be more actions that we continue to work on, especially in the global front."

Republican leaders across the country, including at least 19 governors and two attorneys general, are slamming Biden's new vaccine mandate

One of those pushing back is Florida governor Ron DeSantis, a Catholic.

Ron DeSantis: "When you have a president like Biden issuing unconstitutional edicts against the American people, we have a responsibility to stand up for the constitution and to fight back, and we are doing that in the state of Florida."

However, the White House claims Biden's plans are thoroughly within the law. 

When a reporter asked Jen Psaki if the new mandate would stand up to legal pressure, she mentioned the 1970 Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).

Jen Psaki, White House press secretary: "The law basically requires the Department of Labor take action when it finds grave risk to workers. Certainly, a pandemic that killed more than 600,000 people qualifies as grave risk to workers."

Small business leaders are frustrated with the new measures. Bob Roth, co-owner of a manufacturing business in Michigan, called it "encroaching."

Critics argue the White House has stopped fighting the virus and has turned its attention to fighting the unvaccinated.
